What do you think of Tesla’s electric semi-truck?

Looks neat
Semi is the safest, most comfortable truck ever. Four independent motors provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.

0-60 mph with 80k lbs
< 2 kWh/mi
Energy consumption

and accounting for the greater efficiency of electric motors, as well as regenerative braking, the envelope engineers estimated that an electric semi would require a 1,200 kWh battery pack to achieve a range of 600 miles. At a cost of $100/kWh, which Tesla hopes to reach soon, that would be a $120,000 battery. According to a 2016 article from AskTheTrucker, the cost of a new diesel-powered tractor starts around $113,000, and annual fuel costs are “easily more than $70,000.”

Just so y'all know, this guy is spamming multiple forums/sites with the same posts (google if you don't believe me), and based on behavior of similar types of posters, is probably just a spammer that's going to edit the spam in later. Or get people used to seeing his stuff and then start spamming.

it's no optimus prime.
Kick down the barricades Listen what the kids say.
From time to time people change their minds But the Frock is here to stay.
I've seen it all from the bottom to the top Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.
Around the world or around the block Everywhere I go the kids wanna Frock.
